August 13th Recipe: Creole Succotash

Posted: Updated:

½ cup fresh okra slices (1/2 inch thick)

2 teaspoons unsalted butter

1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup fresh or frozen lima beans

1 ear of corn, kernels cut off (about ½ cup)

¼ cup diced yellow onion

¼ teaspoon minced garlic

1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper

15 grape tomatoes, halved

Salt and ground black pepper


Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Boil the okra slices for 1 minute. Drain and rinse the slime off the okra. Bring more water to a boil in the pot and repeat the boiling and rinsing process. Set aside.


Melt the butter in the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the lima beans, corn, garlic, okra, and cracked pepper to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent and the beans are tender, about 5 minutes.


Add the tomatoes and cook for 1 minute to heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve warm.
